I think Winter must have taken umbrage at my recent insistence on shorts, because last night she decided to remind us that the solstice is still a bit off with yet another snowfall. While it did drive me back into my running tights, it didn’t stop Nat and I for heading out with the jogging stroller for a short 4 mile outing. We received just enough snow to leave a beautiful coating draped over all the trees and rooftops in the neighborhood; in fact, it inspired me to finally take my camera along for a run:
Nat was very tired, and after about a mile dozed off in his cozy blanket along with Super Grover. Besides our late wintery wonderland, you can see a picture of my home-made ice-cleats: 50 cents worth of sheet-metal screws in the sole of an old pair of trail shoes. They were a bit unnecessary for this little snow, but there were a few blocks adjacent to warehouses where the extra traction helped on some un-shoveled sidewalks. I think my heel is doing well enough to move my standard run back up to 4 miles.
Total Distance: 4 miles Total Time: Unrecorded
